How can we prevent cavities in kids and adults?
This can be done by using sealant which is a protective plastic coating applied to the biting surfaces of the back teeth. It forms a hard shield that keeps food and bacteria from getting into the tiny grooves in the teeth and causing decay.Sealants are only applied to teeth that have ‘pits’ (small hollows) and ‘fissures’ (grooves) on their biting surfaces. Our dentist at TOOTH CLINIC will tell you which teeth should be sealed after they have examined them, and checked whether the fissures are deep enough for sealing to help. Some teeth naturally have deep grooves which will need to be sealed; others have shallow ones which will not need sealing.
The process is quick and painless, taking only a few minutes for each tooth. The tooth is thoroughly cleaned, prepared with a special solution, and dried. The liquid sealant is then applied and allowed to set hard – usually by shining a bright light onto it.
